Employees who work their full contracted year will earn sick days according to the following schedule:
Personal Leave: Of the total earned sick days, 6 of them may be used for personal reasons. When checking your Employee Self-Service, 6 personal days will be listed in a separate category. Please keep in mind, those are not additional days that should be added toward your sick balance. For example, if your sick time says 75 hrs. and your personal time says 45 hrs., that means you can use 45 of those 75 hrs. for personal reasons.
How time is earned:
Since we earn time in advance, if an employee resigns or retires prior to the end of their contract, their sick time will be adjusted based on the number of days they worked. For example, if an employee works 40 days of their contract, they will be entitled to 2 days of sick time.
Only 12-month employees are eligible to earn vacation time. Eligible employees will earn a minimum of a half day per pay period. Hours earned are based on continuous years of service with Pasco County Schools.
Paid holidays vary from school year to school year. For information regarding what holidays are paid this year, choose the work calendar that corresponds to your position here.
